. keyser went into, adequately apprised is prohibited under san francisco's][e&- official misconduct law. at least if the official has limited experience playing the six degrees of kevin bacon does the mayor say any and all misconduct will result in someone being put on probation, even purely personal conduct totally unrelated to the performance of any of the official's actual duties? if so are ethics commissioners studley and han saying anything different from what commissioner rene said. is their new relationship requirements so diluted that it amounts to no requirements at all, exactly what mr. rene suggested. and if that is correct, does it not follow that all four commissioners are interpreting san francisco's official misconduct statute in a way that leaves it completely unconstitutionally vague. by making up rules of misconduct proceedings against ross as they went along, the ethics commission appears to have vield the city charter themselves by chersing an authority not;%.f-3 granted by the charter. they do not have my authority to take away my vote. reinstate -state wúw wj4

morning, commissioners, my name is richard shaffer, i'm a resident of san francisco and i'm also a member of the sheet metal workers 104. i think the project is going to have minimum impact from shadows, i thought it was really interesting when we watched the shadows moving across justin herman plaza, how the areas where the people were sitting was where the shadows were, so i think that we have a chance here of creating a nice, small environment in other areas of town and the people will actually gravitate towards the shadows. if that's not the way it would be, then what i would like is that all these tall buildings are being built south of market so that the waterfront is available for expansion for more open space if we want people to sit out in the sun, but i think people like to sit in the shade, so i support this project. i hope you do too. >> commissioner jim lazarus, i'm also here as xhair to have citizen's advisory committee but i first want to tell you, i'm sure some of you have smart phones on, top of the fifth, 6-0 giants on opposing grand slam.

know, for a city that's like san francisco supposed to be very democratic your procedures are actually not very democratic at all when you compare them to other major cities. so that's something you also should be aware of. i just really think that it's not a friendly inviting thing to do, to chastise members of the public for how they give you public comment unless they are really really over the top, yelling, saying rude inappropriate things, which i didn't hear anybody doing tonight. i heard them expressing opinions with passion. they didn't necessarily -- i think you have to be respectful of the public. >> president chiu: next speaker please. >> my name is greg cayman. i actually wanted to echo what steve hill said. i may not be as eloquent but i too was pretty taken aback at some of the comments of the supervisors in particular, you know, supervisor from district 4. you know, i was really taken aback at how vicious, how mean spirited some of her comments were, berating some of the people in public comment. >> president chiu: if i could -- >> we don't work for you. remembe

this city for almost 50 years. as one of san francisco's representatives on the metropolitan transportation commission, along with supervisor campos, i was proud to represent san francisco in the historic votes taken at our renal planning organization several months ago to unanimously pass the california high speed rail mou, that will soon bring us electrified cal train as well as a regional transportation plan that prioritizes this region's major fair of transportation for the extension of cal train dtx, and i just want to reiterate that this was not a foregone conclusion, downtown extension was not necessarily a priority for the entire region and we as a city worked very, very hard to bring the other commissioners from around the bay area on board to support not just electrified cal train but to make clear that downtown san jose to downtown san francisco was one unified project and they have come on board and have committed funding and we as a city have to do our part and we cannot do that without this plan in its full aspect. the downtown extension has been a goal since at

>>> good evening and welcome back. i'm diane dwyer. we begin the 6:00 hour with two ballot measures on the california ballot. the two propositions both raise taxes. one helps just schools. the other has broader goals. and there's plenty of controversy with both of them. today the head of the california public schools weigh in to nbc area on the debate and kimberly tere has more on propositions 30 and 38. >> reporter: diane, state superintendent for public instruction tom turricsen wants voters to say yes on both measures. we caught up with him, but with the election so close, education and these propositions weren't far from his mind. he carefully considered both prop 30 and 38 and says both would help get more money into public schools. >> now, i'm equally strong on both, and i believe that they'll both represent a major rescue plan for the schools. without the passage of either one of them, our schools face more devastating cuts. possibly a shortening of the school year by four weeks. this would make it one of the shortest school years in the modern economy, the modern global world that we are in, and it would hurt our students' ability to compete. >> reporter: so what exactly do the measures do? governor jerry brown's prop 30 asks for a 3% increase in income tax for people making over $250,000 a year for the next seven years and an additional quarter cent tax increase to all sales tax. prop 38 backed by civil rights attorney molly munger will last 12 years and increase personal income taxes using a sliding scale. diane? >> kimberly, thank you. >>> in the race for the white house, president obama, there we go. all right, president obama is clearing his clenpder for the next three days to prepare for tuesday's debate. he used his weekly address to take credit for the rejuvenated auto industry. >> more than a million jobs across country were on the line and not just auto jobs but the jobs of teachers, small business owners, and everyone in communities that depend on this great american industry. but we refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. we refuse to let detroit go bankrupt. i bet on american workers and american ingenuity and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way. >> mitt romney and his running mate are both in the swing state of ohio this weekend. romney spoke to a large crowd, you can see there. hammered the president on china, job creation and the taxes. >> and then, of course, he says he's going to raise taxes. does anyone really think raising taxes on anyone helps get more people to work? the president's plan is status quo. more of the saime. he calls it forward. i call it forewarned. >> paul ryan was also in ohio today. he told voters in that manufacturing state that the president's china policies have cost the country manufacturing jobs. >>> and in denver, police confirm a shot was fired through the window of president obama's downtown campaign office there. they say their investigation includes video from city surveillance cameras's they described the investigation of friday's incident as active and ongoing. people were inside the office when the shooting happened yesterday afternoon. no one was injured. >>> and we have new information on the bachelor party on the bay that ended with a coast guard rescue. a group of would-be partiers are safe onshore after their charter boat hate rock off alcatraz and started taking on water. the captain of the party boat "neptune" radioed for help after 9:00 last night. luckily the coast guard and san francisco fire boats got there in time. crews rescued 22 people part of that bachelor party. the groom-to-be was taking it all in stride. the damaged boat was towed to a sausalito shop for repairs. wyche the boat hit the rock, marked by a buoy, is still under investigation. >>> after a ten-hour standoff, holster police they roved a body believed to be a missing mother heather carroll. they found the body inside the home of david jose quarter ez, he's being held on murder charges after a standoff that ended at 3:00 this morning. heather carroll is a holster mother reported missing on wednesday when she didn't pick her son up from school. the suspect told officers where to find her body during interviews after his arrest. the standoff began friday evening. police were on their way to interview him when they got a tip he was suicidal and armed. he refused to come out for ten hours finally surrendering early this morning. >>> if you live in the south bay, you will soon have to dial differently

number even if calling another 408 number. then on november 20th a new 669 area code will be introduced. customers who request new service, add additional lines or change service may be assigned that new area code. >>> well, it is the end of an riera for a san jose business and holiday tradition. the ray street fish and poultry market closeds its doors tomorrow. the owners say it's time to retire. this means customerless have to look elsewhere for the 10,000 pounds of fresh dungeness crab purchased every christmas week and hurns of turkeys bought at thanksgiving. the market opened back in 1947. the seafood kitchen, by the way, next door to the market, will remain open. >>> it has been weeks and a winning lottery ticket sold in pleasanton is still unclaimed. check the tickets. it's worth

series victory is no doubt going to translate into big business for bars and restaurants here near the ballpark. we talked to the manager of pete's tavern who said it means tens of thousands of dollar, in additional revenue for his establishment. >> if you, on a regular game day, start getting packed say two hours before the game. we're expecting tomorrow to start getting crowded around 10:30 in the morning and last throughout the evening. really looking forward to it. >> reporter: it's also big business for stores selling giants' gear. a manager at the dugout store at the ball pork told me they just received a shipment in today and merchandise is already flying off the shelves. now, stub hub says you can also buy tickets for contingent games, even for the world series if the giants make it that far, and if they don't, stub hub will provide a full refund. live in san francisco, monte francis, nbc bay area news. >>> of course they're going to make it that far. thank you,

beginning to gather to catch a glimpse of the shuttle and see the street is ride open, which means it's still going to be a while before the shuttle actually gets here. one factor as the shuttle moves down the boulevard are the trees here. the city took very great pains to make sure that the shuttle had a clear route. they had to cut down some trees in order to do it. they also had to preserve some trees because they were planted in memory of martin luther king and they not want to cut the trees down. show you video of the shuttle now and talk about the journey that started late thursday, early friday morning. the shuttle started inching its way from los angeles national airport eastbound on its way to its permanent home at the california science center. this morning it made its way to inglewood, and this afternoon it started making its way north to the crenshaw district here in los angeles, and then will proceed east to usc and the california science center in respect have been huge crowds all along the way, but hangups as well. it was delayed for an hour because of some logistical issues involving one tree, and so there have been all sorts of delays. you're talking about moving a structure that is five stories high and that has a wing span of more than 70 feet. they have to be very careful moving this along, and it doesn't always move in a straight line. sometimes they have to kind of shift the shuttle. it doesn't always move in a straight, forward direction, and they had to ma you'neuver aroun trees, sometimes having to take light poles out and sometimes power lines. a delicate $10 million slow-moving trip to its final resting place, if will you, at the california science center near uk ksc. back to you. >>> i have to ask, looks like a parade route out there. folks with their chairs out there. and tents. they're just hanging out waiting for it to show up? >> reporter: yeah. that's right. you know, i said earlier that it kind of feels almost like a tailgate party. this particular family has been so gracious to us. santiago and rodriguez family actually had a little barbecue, so it's kind of like a pregame tailgate atmosphere out here while people are waiting for this big, massive shuttle to come by. >> how was the carne asade? good? >> delicious. >> i'm a little jealous. >>> checking in with jim of comcast sports net with a look at sports. i bet you're gel jealous you didn't get any either? >> a little bummed, but an excellent follow-up question. the best part of the report pop i wanted to know the exact same thing. from the affinity sportsdesk, a busy college football saturday but all the attention in the bay area is on the baseball diamond. preview of game one of the nlcs that begins sunday at at&t park. we go and hear from the giants as they prepare for the st. louis baseball cardinals that is next in sports. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm jim koez mohr. for the first time ever, winners face each other in the income ls. the giants host the st. louis cardinals and it begins sunday at at&t park. manager bochy named the starters in the series. madison bumgarner will go against lance lynn. giants had a workout at the ballpark earlier today. aim gutierrez was there and more on the giants preparation. >> reporter: well it is fair to say most folks counted the san francisco giants out of the postseason. heading into cincinnati down two games to none in the nlcs but the giants miraculously sweeping the reds to move on to the next level. the giants are a confident bunch and a motivated group headed into game one of the nlcs versus the st. louis cardinals. >> pretty much everybody counted us out and we were able to fight back and that was, you know, just another reference point of watching the cardinals last night. >> both clubs at some point had the their backs to the wall. we did going into cincinnati. had to win three straight and they're down a couple runs in the ninth, found a way to get it done. so i think it says a lot about the two clubs, the character of the clubs and how hard they fight and this should be a really hard-fought series here. >> it's huge. i mean, it's very uplifting and motivating. you see what they were able to do for themselves. they're riding high. confident. the series we had, come back and everything we did as group, huge. so it's definitely going to be a battle. it's going to seem, you know, who's the better group? who's the best people really. >> reporter: the giants first base coach, roberto kelly struck with a line drive during batting practice was aided off the field and accompanied to a local hospital with a giants' trainer and team doctor. he will undergee standard ct scan to check for bleeding, and it is likely he has a concussion, but he was doing well considering. from at&t park, amy gutierrez for nbc bay area news. >>> thank you. as for the opponents, the cardinals are truly an incredible story. came back from a 6-0 deficit last night against the washington nationals. beat the nats 9-7 and win the nlcs three games to to. and a home run in the game-winning hit for the cards. >> brian and the ownership group near san francisco has done a great job of setting a great foundation for what this organization is all about and the fan base has been phenomenal in their support, but it's a nice play to play and i definitely learned a lot of things. >> reporter: to it college gridiron. this one hotly contested. 17 stanford, 7, notre dame. into overtime an a notre dame score. stanford tries to punch it in. stopped. fourth and goal, for the game. is he stopped? does he keep going? over the line? the call on the field. a little misangle. is it a stop? the official says, he's down. no touchdown. this one ends with notre dame wirning by a final of 20-13. college football locally. san jose state. 28-20. aggies kirwin williams breaks one off and goes untouched. 86 yards for the house. utah state pours it on the second half winning 49-27. spartan spartans lose for the second time this year. >>> and for now, everyone preparing for the busy sports day in san francisco sunday. 49ers host the football giants at 1:15 at the stick. giants hosting the cards, 5:17 p.m. good luck drives in the city, everybody nap will do it in sports, diane. back to you. >> have fun with that. maybe b.a.r.t. a good idea, or caltrain. >> good call. >>> let's check in with rob my aida with the weather for tomorrow. anything like today, it's going to be very nice. >> should be outstanding. looking at temperatures around candlestick probably closer to 70 degrees right around mid-afternoon. then a few patchy, low clouds coming in. later in the evening, again, giants and cardinals, game one of the national league championship series. first pitch time may actually be close to 70 degrees. picking up, the sea breeze, like now. and monday the weather looking very nice. maybe a little warmer for game two in san francisco out at at&t park. right now, 65 degrees in san francisco. 67 in san jose. the late-day sea breeze reaching into the santa clara valley now cooling everyone down after a gorgeous day with highs 70s. bay area wide. the satellite view. no, looks interesting. a big system here that is aiming at a lot of rain to the specific northwest. deflecting all of that rain and keeping the pacific ocean garden hose away from the bay area. thank goodness. high pressure off to the west of us. high clouds coming in from time to time between now and tuesday and wednesday this ridge of high pressure kind of expands across northern california. so underneath that ridge you're going to get sinking, warming, dry air aloft. north winds working into the bay area, too, which means at least our inland valley should see a chance of low 90s around thursday and friday and then cooling as we head towards next weekend. the summerlike pattern breaks down by next weekend. tomorrow morning, heading out to the nike women's marathon tomorrow, could have low clouds and mist for the morning, and then the patchy low clouds bow gak to the coast through the afternoon, and a few low clouds at times going towards 4:00 and 5:00. again, low clouds backing offshore, which means even the coast by mid-week will see numbers in the 70s and 80s. tonight 40s and 50s outside. probably as far inland at pleasanton and livermore. patchy low clouds and tomorrow's highs running a couple degrees warmer than today. mds 70s in san jose. low 80s towards morgan hill around the tri-valley. numbers in the 70s to low 80s. pleasant afternoon. pleasanton, 84 tomorrow. 73 in oakland. 70s and 80s across the north bay. three-day forecast, a mild bump up in temperatures next couple of days. the big change wednesday. high really starts to build in, getting towards thursday and friday feeling like summer. not just the valleys but coast and peninsula seeing 70s an 80s. next weekend cooling as more clouds start to spill back in for next weekend. >> all right. thank you, rob. >> sure. >>> coming up, hundreds are killed by trains in california every year. we'll check the bay area's record and how your tax dollars are being spent. an investigative unit report. >>> just last week dozens of people were injured in two separate train incidents in the central valley. here in bay area from b.a.r.t. to caltrain tracks are everywhere. investigate ib reporter take as look what's being done to make sure the tracks are safe. >> reporter: yeah, we found local railways spend millions every year to prevent the tragedies dut despite the efforts it's still happening and there's no easy solution to stopping it. >> we'll stand right in front of the train and wait for you to come. >> reporter: it's a reality of the job, for those at the helm of a train. >> once you see them, there's basically nothing you can do. it's already too late. >> reporter: they're not the only ones impacted. take this caltrain crash back in may. a man walking along the rails in south san jose was hit and killed by a 200 ton train. halting service for nearly an our. the federal railroad administration tracks accidents happening on interstate rail lines. since 2004 nearly 900 people have died in california. about a seventh of those happened in the bay area. the problem isn't just interstate rail lines. we looked at our local commuter rails, since 2004, more than 200 people have died. >> do you think it can ever completely prevented? >> i don't know the answers to that. i would certainly hope so, as i've said before, the safety is a community issue. >> reporter: aleash kushner, nbc news bay area news. >>> and more on the investigation on our 11:00 news cast. >>> when we come back, an 11-year-old boy, the envy of just about every adult golfer. we'll explain. >>> for most golfers getting a hole in one is a feat. kai brown znder is 11, a hole in one on an oregon government course governmelfing with his m. hole 6, from 141 yards out, swung sort of like that and sank it in one shot. >> i was thinking, oh, my gosh. i don't believe it. i thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, and then my mom screamed, you hit a hole in one! >> so just how big of a deal is it, you ask? the golf course sees a hole in one about once every 9,000 rounds there and never by a golfer as young at kai. not bad. yeah. pretty fun. >>> thanks

not only all over san francisco butter especially in this corner of san francisco where folks are naturally hoping the giants go all the way. especially the people who have businesses who sell to fans. red white and blue championship game bunting was going up while they held separate practice sessions on the field. business was great and the dugouts sports store with fans snapping up gear. kip just had to have another giants shirt. >> i bought another shirt because they won because i need something new to wear tomorrow to cheer them on. >> reporter: she was a ballpark regular and know what is the championship games mean for the neighborhood. >> it's good for pedro's and pete's. all along the corridor here and probably public house because it gets really crowded when the giants are playing and they can't afford tickets. >> reporter: good too for the popular paragon bar just a block away. >> it was chaos for most of the time but it was fun you know. lots of people excited and everyone you know piling out on to the streets. >> reporter: now paragon's gearing up for a repeat and tryin

san francisco. and that simply shows a continuing failurez/[. to underd the issue of domestic violence, to]@j understand the pivotal importance that this city's response to hisejáq domestic violence as sheriff carries. watching. and i think many are probably astounded by the notion that our normally progressive jurisdiction, our jurisdiction that usually reaches out to protect the victims, to protect the powerless are considering allowing a sheriff, and entertaining the notion that domestic violence does not relate to the duties of a chief law enforcement officer. it's important, i think, to remember that this misconduct is very significant. it is not just a mistake. it's not a mistake on december 31st. it's a crime. and it's a serious crime, with a serious sentence. >> president chiu: continue please. thank you. >> and the sheriff's -- that domestic violence doesn't matter when it's committed by a sheriff. he wants you to believe that the voters would have you remove a sheriff if he commits petty theft of office supplies, but not if he threatens the life of a family member. that can'

to signify to the candidates that they have 15 seconds remaining and will hold up a red card when it is time to stop. both candidates have agreed to ask their supporters in the audience to be respectful of the other candidate and others in the audience and to maintain quiet during the forum. i also ask you respect this commitment. you have many important decisions to make on november 6th. today's forum gives you the opportunity to ask questions to help you make decisions. now let's begin. >> we will start with question number one, miss difficult on. >> retire aoes in the public and private sectors are faced with nrets to benefits from under funded pen son funds what would you do to prevent this from arriving in the future how do you make everyone life up to their obligations. >> let me thank the league by thanking you and the jr. league for hosting this event and very much thank the senator for participating. i know that there are a reasons here in san francisco where the result is a foregone conclusion according to many, politicians and i respect the fact that he respects the voters by attending this event. on your question regarding pensions, my husband is here in the audience and he is a retired beneficiary of a state pension program and so we very much think that the state needs to honor its obligations to all of the workers who did that program over the years and those are contractual obligations and i am an attorney and i do believe that those obligations need to be honored. however we have what the government has called a ponzi scheme and so there needs to be definitely a serious readjustment of the priorities in terms of making it more of a private sector-funded type of pension benefit program going forward. >> thank you. >> mr. leno? >> let me also thank both leagues for bringing us together today and also it is a real pleasure to be here with miss dillan who is a great respectful of her party and an activist in the community. as i think that most californians know that we have spent a lot of time dealing with the issue of pension reform for the public sector workers and i think that we have reached a point where we can going forward deal with pensions in a much more sustain able fashion so that we won't see cities in particular having upwards of 25, 30 percent of the general fund having to go to pension obligations. of course, those promises already made must legally be adhered to. i have also said in a lot of time in this past year, looking at private sector employees in publicly traded corporations, who have seen their benefits wiped out and in many cases actually stolen by top executives who are shifting significant amounts of money to their benefit at the expense of those workers. >> thank you, the time limits are tough, aren't they? >> the next question for mr. leno is state proposition 35, asks if the definition of human trafficking should be expanded and penalties for traffickers increased, convicted sexual trafers be required to register as sexual offenders and officers be trained and why. what is your view and why? >> the issue of human trafficking is a serious one, san francisco is one of the top cities in the nation experiencing this kind of crime. i authored a bill sponsored by our attorney general harris this past year, which expands asset forfet tour, it is a way for us to quickly gain resources so that we can provide services for victims and invest in greater public safety police officers and investigator to deal with these crimes. i am opposed to prop 35, number one because the author of it is the single individual, deep pocket putting this forward. it is not a citizen's initiative. never came to talk to me what was wrong or short with our bill that he had to go to the ballot and expanding the definition to those who have to register as sex offenders to include those who have not even committed a sex crime, i think delutes the benefit of our sex registry. >> i think that the support for 35 is a no-brainer. i support 35. i do agree that the problem with sex trafficking in our society in california is a very significant one. in san francisco is frankly the epi center of sex trafficking industry. and i find it interesting that the attorney general participated with the senator in his abnormal legislation and she did not do much about sex trafficking when she was the district attorney in the city and so, i walked to work through china town through russian hill and i pass sex dens every day and i wonder why the police don't do anything about it. we need more boots on the ground and will at the political level to enforce the law and appears that we need state level support as well. >> thank you, so this is a big picture question. miss dillon. >> what do you think that the legislature can do to address the systemic problems with the finances. >> that is a big picture question, it is a tough question. i think that in the long term a lot of the problems that we have here in the budget relate to the ease at which citizens can put ballot box budgeting measure into his our state rule books and they don't sunset and the legislature has increasing little control as well as the government what can and cannot be cut every year. this is a problem that is not caused by democrats or republicans or the structure of our system. that is one thing that i would try to change is have legislation passed that would allow any such provisions that are sponsored by citizens and maybe even provisions that are sponsored by legislatures such as a senator to sunset or be examined regularly by some type of a commission. as to whether they remain valid. that is the big picture, but the other big thing that the state needs to do is recognize that we need to cut, cut, cut. and reenvig rate what our priorities are. the example is education verses the bullet train, i don't think that we can have both right now. >> thank you. >> mr. leno? >> yes. what i have learned through ten years of working in the state legislature, is we have a very serious and significant governor nans problem and that is two-thirds vote requirement on the most important issue of the day which is revenue. we have seen our revenue cut significantly by taxes that arnold schwarzenegger cut his first day in office. we have a depoll that prop is trying to refill it. we should not have to do it at the ballot box when out of 40 state senators 14 have more power than 26. 14 can veto when 26 want. i tell fifth graders that and they say that is not democracy that is not possible. that is exactly the problem, we don't have democracy on all issues, revenue-related in the legislature, let the majority party do its job and if the voters don't like what the majority party is doing in no one jerry man dered districts change who is in power, it is call democracy. >> continuing on the theme of democracy, and how people engage with their elected officials and with government generally, clearly civic engagement is critical for a safe, strong and a vibrant state and i am curious what you have done and what you will do to encourage appropriate participation in democracy. >> i think that we could probably most simply define participation and democracy aside from community hearings and gatherings is the opportunity to vote. and i have sponsored any number of bills that address the expansion of making it user for people with very busy lives who are probably operating sometimes in languages not their mother tongue to be able to cast a vote. we have seen across this country, the legislature is put in place, more and more hurtles so that people are disenfranchised and not able to get to the polls and we don't see that happening here in california. but certainly supported the same-day registration, on-line registration and unfortunately, these kinds of advancements, expansions of the voter franchise often pass on party-line votes. >> thank you. >> and what have you done or what will you do to encourage civic participation? >> what i have done is run in this race i ran four years ago and i am the chairman of the republican party and i am very active in my community as a first generation immigrant and encouraging people in the communities to register to vote and i think that the right to vote is the most precious right of a democracy and a citizen. i think that people don't vote despite the ease that occurs here in california for them to vote because they feel like their vote won't make a difference. they feel like what is going on in sacramento is not affected what the people think, it is what the unions and special interests think, people don't bother to come and vote because their vote does not count. the main thing that i would dow if i were in the legislature is push for a part time legislature. i think that one of the problems that we have is that the legislators like senator leno who started out as a small businessman and knew what it was like to be in that position, they gradually lose that in vying to get reelection. >> 40 other states have part time and i think that california needs to look at that as well. >> thank you. >> i am going back to questions about the current state propositions. proposition 37, seeks to require labeling on foods, containing genetically modified ingredients when the food, raw or processed are offered to sale to consumers in california, what is your position on this miss dillan? >> i think that it is a good idea in principle and i think that it is a good idea that the market is amplely equipped to take care of my husband and i personally shop and look for foods that are fish, for example, that is caught in california, and caught in the sustainable mat and her that is our choice and we pay more for that. at the same time, there are a lot of people who would like the choice to be able to buy those gmo, products and the labeling that is required by the proposition is very flawed in my opinion. it treats dog food in the same way as it treats food for humans. and it is defining the genetically modified in such a way that heirloom tomatoes that are a mix of old tomatoes seeds would fall under from category. while i support the idea that i would like to know personally where my food comes from we being not ignore the huge cost, and i oppose it and i welcome them do come back with more legislation in that regard. >> i was an early endorser of prop 37. it is quite amazing to me that 50 percent of the population on this planet buys products, food products, that have this kind of labeling, the prop 37 would require for california already on their packages. disclosure is good. people, consumers should have the opportunity to make choices. there are some who will not have concern with genetically modified products and they will be able to purchase food knowingly. but those who do have concerns, currently are in the dark and cannot make that choice. and so, if it is good enough for china, it is good enough for russia and the european union, i think that it is good enough for california but for the entire united states of america and california will take a great lead in passing this in november. but we are going to see about 35 million dollars spent to fight the likes of monsanto and other corporations against it. >> so you both touched on it when you were answering that question, the role of government and what is appropriate and i am curious more of a general question, starting with you mr. leno. what do you think that the government should do and when should the government step aside? >> certainly. >> one of the most important roles of government, and for state government is to provide public safety and i think that goes beyond just the police and fire protection, but also to make sure that we keep our air safe. that we keep our water clean and drinkable, which is not the case in many parts of the state right now. that we make sure that our food is safe as well. and so, that is where regulation does come in. there is also, when you ask where the government should step aside, we work on a bill this past year which reforms the regulations for permitting of solar installations for residents and commercial properties. this impedes the expansion of a great industry that is employing more and more people, that can provide more and more tax benefit to the state. that is where the state should step aside and we could have a uniform regulatory process, lower fees. >> thank you. >> i agree with the senator that public safety is one of the few, in my opinion that the government should have control over in our lives. but i wonder why the senator is a support of the trust act that senator amiano supported that tried to prevent the state from returning illegal aliens who commit serious crimes including gang violence from being deported from this country, that is a public safety issue that all of us who live in san francisco have to deal with every day. so i really question whether one can square one of those statements with the other. i believe in the natural law from john stewart mill and other philosophers that our rights do not flow from the government, the government's rights and the government's rights flow from the citizens. and so the government should have as limited a scope as possible, not and interfere with business and not interfere with our privacy and not spy on us and generally keep the public order and that is about it. >> thank you, so following up on that one of those things that the government is involved in right now is the educational system. and california used to have an education system that was the envy of the nation. how do you feel we get that back? >> well, it is a tragedy that what used to be one of the top systems in the country is now i think, 47th according to a recent standard that i saw. the senator and folks in his party in sacramento believe that spending more is the answer. that is clearly not the case. i think that los angeles county they spent $9,000 per student in public school system. the average cost of private school $6,000. i support the voucher system that allow the parents to put the children in charter schools, private schools, what we cannot escape is that the school system is broken, again, let's ask the senator, why did the senator support, why did the senator oppose legislation that one of his fellow democrats proposed that would remove dangerous teachers that were convicted of crimes from the classroom and from the public roles? i would like to know the answer to that. >> thank you. mr. leno. >> the 47 out of 50 states figure that miss dillan used is not in educational out comes it is in per pupil. we rank 47th. >> as a result we rank 50 as the number of counselors and the number of nurses in our schools and the number of libranias in. you get what you pay for. >> our state has been starved for cash for the past ten years as a result of tax cuts the state could not afford that the prior governor put on the credit cards. we need to provide significantly more funding not only through k-12 education which is the birth right of every child to be able to get a quality public education in my opinion and to be able to pursue the dream of a higher education and that is getting further and further out of the reach of children in california because the state does not support education. we need funding, we need to spend it on education. >> so, therefore, do you think that community colleges should perhaps change their focus? one idea is to focus on retraining unemployed workers and upgrading skills for new jobs. do you feel that the state should encourage this? and how? >> if you are making reference to the challenges facing the san francisco community college at this time, i think that there are going to be some very painful and although, necessary, redirection of focus. we have been providing a lot of classes, non-credit classes and classes that don't need to further training for new employment. or for the opportunity to pursue a 4-year degree. and given that, upwards of 40 percent of all new jobs created in the next 20 years are going to require a bachelor's degree and only about 32 percent of californians will have one. we are going to have to refocus, particularly at community college level again, with limited resources to assist those who are moving from one career to another. mid career as a result of the changing economy so that they can get new skills that they will need and for younger people who want to get into the job market to help them to be able to get on a path that will get them that bachelor's degree. >> i agree with the senator that the retraining is a important aspect of the educational system here. i think city college here in san francisco falls into entirely different category or problems that don't afflict some of the other community colleges around the state. beyond that, however, we have to recognize that college in and off itself is not necessarily suitable for all students and we have to recognize that at an earlier age, we should have more vocational type of training tracks in our high school education as well. people want to go straight from high school into auto mechanic or green jobs such as installing solar technology, things like that. that should be an option, as well. i think that it is a fallacy that every citizen or every resident of california needs to have a college education. >> so i have a question, here from the room. governor brown vetoed both the trust act and the domestic worker's bill last week, how do you feel about those pieces of legislation which are critical to the immigrant community? >> i think that the problem that the governor articulated with the trust act is the one that i just articulated two questions ago, it excludes large categories of serious crimes from the purview, meaning that people from the members of the gangs and convicted as such as well as other serious victim naturals are under the purview of the trust act and not subject to deportation, i think that it is wrong and ignores the rights to the citizens. >> with regard to the domestic workers i am an attorney who helps workers, and enforce their rights on the federal and state law and i think that it is important that those rights be respected. he posed the question to the authors of that law in vetoing it as to what is the impact going to be on some of the elderly and the sick who rely on home care workers in particular, and i guess the governor, a democrat found that legislation to be too broad, too enerous and em posing more requirements on the small businesses than was necessary and asked that a more tailored and more appropriate set of legislation come back to him on that subject and i would agree with that. >> mr. leno. >> i supported both of those bills with regard to the domestic workers' rights bill. we heard so many horror stories in the committee hearings. if you could imagine being in the employment and not being able to take the kinds of breaks for meals and for rest, even to have an 8-hour workday, it is a different kind of employment, so it is not as easily tailored to the kind of worker protection rights that we expect in every other industry. so it is a delicate and challenging subject. i would imagine that maniano will come back with a refined version of the bill working with the administration in hopes of getting a signature because it is not an issue that can be ignored. >> with regard to the trust act, the governor was specific in his veto message that he thought that the definition of non-violent crime needed to be further refined but certainly for those who are committing low-level crimes that the risk that they would have to be sent back to a country which means nothing to them at this point through the federal government is something that needs to be reformed. >> thank you. >> ending with the theme of public safety, our final question, is that the state proposition 36 seeks to amend california law to provide that a life sentence should not be imposed for a third felony conviction unless it is for a serious or violent felony, and what is your position. >> i spent a lot of time my ten years in legislation working on criminal justice reform to make sure that we have saner drug laws and we don't see the spending grow from 5.2 to over ten percent surpassing the amount that we spend on higher education as a completely wrong track that we are on. thanks to corn brown we have turned the corner and with realignment we will be reducing that percentage of funding on the criminal justice so that we can spend it on education which is the best crime preventive tool known to human kind. i am a strong supporter of prop 36 and i supported the earlier version in 2004 when only because of wise that arnold schwarzenegger said in a television commercial that it was mathematically impossible and factually inaccurate and he said it on television and we saw the support go from 65 percent down to 48 percent in two weeks. it is currently polling in the 60s, i hope that it passes. >> thank you. miss dillan. >> i support it as well. and i am an attorney but i am a civil attorney, but speaking to prosecutor and judges, they agree that the instance of the three strikes law requires a lot of criminals to go to trial who would not otherwise because they have nothing to lose by rolling the dice. and so, it does not pose a cost at a criminal justice system but beyond that it is a moral matter that we have a problem as a society to sending someone to life in prison for a jonvaljon type of crimes and stealing a loaf of bread. i trust the judge to make the right in sentence and they should be given better discorrection in that regard. >> the reform of the death penalty is another issue, that you have to question where the dollars are being spent as to whether that is a good use of our resources. >> now we come to the closing statements. let me first remind you all that if you are not registered to vote, please do so right away and please urge your friends and family to regular as well. the deadline is coming up. monday, october 22nd, and remember, that if you have moved, you need to register again at that new address, if you have changed your name you need to reregister. so we will do the candidate's closing statements in reversal fa bet cal order. you have two minutes and our timers will give you the cards and first mr. leno. >> certainly, it is now in california, here in san francisco for the past 35 years. starting small businesses in 1978 and coming into public service in 1998. the 14 years that i have had the elective office have been a rare and privilege opportunity to serve, which i think is to be the best districts of the state of california, and the city and county of san francisco, this past couple of years in the sonoma county as well and going back and representing the west tip as well. and i want to continue to make sure that we have a strong government, strong and effective state government. and i have talked about the governor nans issue, making sure that we let the majority rule so that we don't have the kind of stall mates that we find currently where the minority party can block what the majority wants to do and so we can have the democracy. i make the point that we didn't become the 8th or 9th largest economy in the world by chance. we became so because for generations we taxed ourselves appropriately and invested in some of the best public structures this world has ever seen, the best k-12 system, the most accessible and affordable higher education system so that children can pursue the hope and dream of a college degree. we invested in water system and transportation systems that works, parks that drew the best and the brightest from around the world so they could pursue their own here in the golden state. unfortunately we lost our way some years back, we got a strong governor who is experienced and i believe is getting us back on track. i want to be able to work with him and have the privilege to represent this district, again for a second term. so that we can continue the good work that we started. thank you. >> dillan >> i am a first generation immigrant and i came from india and from the south, and i am a civic attorney and i believe in the american dream and as it is exercised here in the beautiful city of san francisco and the state of california where i chose to live, but many california voters are voting with their feet and they are voting with their feet to leave the state of california. they are moving to nevada, texas and other parts of the country where they are less taxed and regulated and less burdened by rules such as calorie count on the menus such as the regulations regarding home care workers, it does not make sense to start a new business here in california. and frankly that is where the taxes come from in most states they come from businesses. as the businesses flee you are going to see the tax base flee and as legislatures such as senator leno continue to pass more legislation that impedes the freedom of

many of these businesses have been either in san francisco or close to san francisco. i think this will allow more of these companies to locate a larger presence into san francisco and even if some of their detailed operations remain outside the city limits, almost all the support organizations for these companies such as their legal, their accounting, their advertising are located in san francisco and of course this would be another opportunity for more of a presence of companies where their workforce is, so those are some of the benefits but i think in terms of the shadows, clearly the staff has done a magnificent job of presenting how demin mouse the shadow increases are and how the increase in new sunlight from the benefits of the plan will more than mitigate any increases. >> commissioner harrison? >> first of all, i would like to commend the committee for doing the work, the staff doing the work on this thing, showing the human beings out there with what with what they're doing in the like has a potential use son some of the parks, i think that's extraordinary work and thank you v
